Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The hamlet of Mile End New Town remained part of the parish of Saint Dunstan's, Stepney (P93/DUN), until 1841, when it was created a district chapelry of Saint Dunstan's, with its own church of All Saints. The church was built on what was then Spicer Street. It was built under the auspices of the Church Building Commission with some funding from the Metropolitan Church Fund.The architect was Thomas Larkins Waller. It was consecrated on 25th November 1839. The spire had to be removed in 1894, as the result of deterioration in the stonework, but the church suffered only superficial damage during the Second World War. In 1951 the parish was joined to Christ Church, Spitalfields, and the church of All Saints was subsequently demolished. After closure, the vicarage and church hall were transferred to the use of Christ Church, Spitalfields (P93/CTC1).
